Current events for kids to write about

Foreign fourth-generation descendants of Japanese will be able to work in Japan for up to five years under a preferential visa program to be introduced this summer, the Justice Ministry said Friday. The new program applies to ethnic Japanese between 18 and 30 who have basic Japanese skills equivalent to the N4 level of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test.

Applicants will also be required to have support from residents they know in Japan, such as family members or employers, who can get in touch with them at least once a month. Among those planning to apply are people who spent their childhoods in Japan with their parents before losing their jobs during the global financial crisis.

Some of their parents later returned to Japan, but their grown-up fourth-generation offspring could not because the visa system only grants preferential full-time working rights and semi-permanent status to second- and third-generation descendants.

Under the new system, minors will be able to work. The new program begins on July 1, and the Justice Ministry expects around 4, descendants of Japanese emigrants from such places as Brazil and Peru to enter Japan each year.

They say the new immigrants could be used as cheap labor at factories or construction sites in dire need of labor, especially ahead of the Tokyo Olympics. However, Wajin status only counted as long as the economy was good.

While this is nice on the surface for reuniting Nikkei families now that Japan has been courting the Nikkei to come back for renewed exploitation and disrespectnow they want these children, many of whom grew up as an illiterate underclass in Japan with no right as foreigners to compulsory education in Japan, to come back and work again starting July 1.
